1366 Tech., Hunt Perovskite Tech. Merge Announced (M&A)
1366 Technologies,Hunt Perovskite
Date: 2021-06-28
Bedford, Mass.-based silicon wafer manufacturer 1366 Technologies and Dallas-headquartered Hunt Perovskite Technologies are reporting a merger to form CubicPV, which is reportedly in partnership talks with an as yet unidentified Indian firm.

Breakthrough Energy Ventures, First Solar, and Hunt Energy Enterprises are the three top shareholders in CubicPV.

CubicPV reportedly plans establish a 2GW solar wafer and cell manufacturing unit with an investment of around $300-350 million under the Indian central government's production-linked incentive scheme.

While CubicPV will establish and control the wafer and cell manufacturing, the yet to be determined local partner would handle module assembly from the cells and marketing in India. CubicPV will utilise 1366's trademark Direct Wafer process to produce wafers directly from molten silicon instead of ingots.

Hunt Perovskite Tech. Scores $2.5Mn DOE Funding (Ind. Report)
Hunt Perovskite Technologies
Date: 2021-04-16
Dallas-based Hunt Perovskite Technologies (HPT) reports it has been selected to receive $2.5 million in funding from the US DOE Solar Energy Technologies Office Fiscal Year 2020 Perovskite Funding Program for research and development of more efficient and commercially viable perovskite photovoltaic (PV) devices. HPT is one of the 22 selected to receive a total of $40 million.

The DOE funding is for projects that could increase access to reliable electricity by improving the country's understanding of perovskite stability. Eventually, the department hopes to enable the domestic production of high-efficiency perovskite devices.

US-MAP Boosts Solar Perovskite Commercialization (Ind Report)
NREL
Date: 2020-05-04
NREL reports it has joined with the Washington Clean Energy Testbeds at the University of Washington, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and the University of Toledo to form the US Manufacturing of Advanced Perovskites Consortium (US-MAPPS).

While perovskite cells have shown promise in the lab, more work remains to be done to ensure that the technology is ready for commercial success, according to NREL. Manufacturing, durability, and sustainability remain challenges and will be the consortium's research focus. Members of US-MAP will share R&D, validation, and pilot manufacturing, which will reduce development costs and technology risks for potential investors.

US-MAP has six major US-based industry players as founding members: BlueDot Photonics, Energy Materials Corporation, First Solar, Hunt Perovskites Technologies, Swift Solar, and Tandem PV.
